    There's plenty about how the music business works that I don't agree with but I understand why it is the way it is and why in the end it needs to be that way.

    The problem is people throwing the shady business label around like it's a hot potato as if the label is doing things behind the artists back. People willingly sign contracts every single day without reading and/or understanding the terms. It doesn't mean the label is shady, it means you're...

    Who should get to decide what fair is? Since when is fairness a component of conducting business? All business is exploitation to one degree or another. Can you say rapper X is being deceived or unjustly exploited when he willingly entered into a contract that may not be in his favor...

    I understand just fine. So here's the big shocker for you -- performing songs written by other people is certainly 'the norm' for "urban" artists as much as anyone else. Arguably even more so. As far as artists writing their own lyrics vs. using songwriters.. I couldn't care less. Some...

    Question for those who have released a cd

    1. You failed to mention what YOUR price-range is. "Suitable for the budget of an underground artist" could mean anything. 2. As DJ Mark 7 pointed out, you failed to mention WHERE YOU LIVE. You want answers relevant to your question but you don't provide any relevant information to start...

    What happened to the r&b group?

    Blackstreet has had continuous problems and it's always involved money. Teddy Riley is a cold piece with the contracts but then you see where it got him in the long run.
